Centerpiece Favors

"Small bouquets make ideal centerpieces," says Bosquet. "It's a nice idea to have as many bouquets as you have guests, so you can use them as party favors." Here, she grouped roses, narcissus, parrot tulips, and ranunculus. "A white palette allows you to do anything," she says of the simply decorated plate. "I used narcissus to wrap the napkins and also tucked them into the bouquets." Another rule broken: "It's not the best idea to mix narcissus with other flowers. The sap from their stems kills other things," she says. "But I did it anyway. They'll last for a nice long lunch -- but not too long!"
